Foreign Policy Symposium Gallery
South Africa’s International Relations: A 15 year Appraisal: The University of South Africa (UNISA) and the Institute for Global Dialogue (IGD) hosted a Symposium on May, 09 2011 at Manhattan Hotel. The Symposium provided the opportunity to take stock of South Africa’s foreign policy and international relations in the region and beyond for the purpose of anticipating its future role, as well as consider the opportunities and challenges in responding appropriately to future needs and demands. South Africa’s foreign policy and international relations have evolved with changes in the global order and the African strategic environment. Indeed, its role and conduct, along with priorities, interests and values have changed (and continue to change) since the country’s democratic transition. A proper prognosis of the future of SA’s international relations and foreign policy must begin with a diagnostic analysis of key features of the country’s foreign policy and international role in the past decade.
